Hi, Is there a easiest/ best way to do a blog? Complete newbie. Is it possible to have it visible to invited people only? Can you moderate comments. It will be kids producing the blog. Preferably easy as possible to upload pictures/ text and make it look okay! Thanks for any advice.
Hi I use WordPress for mine, it is easy to use and you can make posts private or public. If you would like to take a look, my bog is here https://sunraintea.com I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have 🙂
Hi Parrotonmyshoulder. I've just started a blog myself using blogger and completely new to the blogging world. Check it out at ivf-2-baby.blogspot.com Happy to share/hear any tips or advice along the way.
I've just started a blog using WordPress. It was so easy to set up, I had it set up in around 30 minutes. I have upgraded to the paid subscription though, only because i didn't want Wordpress ads all over mine, but you can just sign up with a free account if you're not sure how you'll get on with it.
I'll be trying to update it as often as possible now. I'm just using it as a diary/somewhere to write down my thoughts throughout the week really, but it's also focused on our family & love of Disney. Literally just started it, only 2 posts done at the moment.
Hi @DMF1305, agree that your blog is lovely to look at (I've only just clicked on, so will have a read now!). Can I ask please, how do you get the photos so beautifully aligned? I'm new to Wordpress Do you have any sites you use for tips on how to use it?
@Goostacean Thank you so much, that means a lot because I have been getting stressed out about it this last week or so because I was worried it didn’t look like some of the blogs I follow. I will send you a PM regarding photos, I don’t do a lot to be honest other than upload them but it could be something to do with the theme that you are using. I’ll send you a message anyway.
Oh lovely, congratulations! I’ve only recently started, although I have wanted to blog for years. I actually find it quite therapeutic, writing down my thoughts, tidying it all up, getting my photos sorted etc. I just need to get organised now so I can post in a more regular pattern. When you’re set up send me your link so I can follow you. I will send you a DM as soon as i’m at a proper computer, currently replying on my phone in between some work stuff.
I came back to update - I decided against starting the new blog as I couldn't think of a good angle, and it felt forced. I have however updated my existing blog, and put it on Facebook - and now I'm watching the viewing stats creep up! It's so weird, but fun, but nerve-wracking… Argh!
Finally got my focus back, although I do need to write another post this weekend - my last one was the start of a two-parter about a recent trip we did. Here's the link (very outing!): pretendportena.wordpress.com/ Feedback gratefully received
@m30002 My LO is only 8 months old, so I'll definitely take a look at your blog for some tips for the next 8 months..!
